Description

Moderator: Tommaso Cammarano is a graduate of Columbia University and was head writer on Season 8 of Un Medico in Famiglia (A Doctor in the Family), Italy's most renowned TV Series.

From acclaimed director Paolo Virzì comes this intense comedy about two very different women who escape a mental institution and hit the road in search of redemption.

Beatrice (Valeria Bruni Tedeschi) is a wealthy, rebellious, and outrageous personality, committed by her family to a mental institution. Donatella (Micaela Ramazzotti) has survived a suicide attempt that also almost took the life of her child, and is a person who can barely able to hold a conversation. Seeking out a new friend, Beatrice hauls Donatella on a daring escape, seeking to reunite the fragile woman with her child, now adopted to more stable parents.

With rich cinematography that casts this unpredictable story in warm Tuscan sunlight, Like Crazy will make you laugh, it will bring tears to your eyes, and will make you question society's notion of sanity and healing.


Press

"[Director Virzì] delivers a finale of such genuine emotional beauty that even tear-resistant audiences will find their cheeks damp." —Variety
